Itching/weeping rash. Assuming the antibiotic is appropriate for the problem, you can used topical calamine lotion for the itching.The weeping ought to decreases as the problem subsides.

Weeping wound. You can stop the weeping by covering it up. The best cover would be a vaseline gauze right on top of the surface of the wound with 2-3 sterile gauze squares piled loosely on top to soak up any fluid that gets through the vaseline cause. Then cover the whole bandage with either tape or an ace wrap. Change the dressing every 24-72 hours depending on how much drainage accumulates.
